No objection to exporting may_setuid, nor to creating may_setgid(),
but I don't think may_setgid() is right.  See below

We should pass in a user_ns so we can eventually check for
capable_to(ns, CAP_SETGID).  So the caller may not be
CAP_SETGID in the root user namespace, but may have created
the child user namespace and be privileged there.

I think it's possible for two different group_info's to have the same
member groups.

I think the thing to do is walk over all groups in group_info,
and do in_egroup_p(g) for each.

It's also possible that groups 1, 4, and 5 are in current_group_info and 6 is
current_egroup, while we're asking for a group_info with groups 1, 5 and 6, and
egid of 4.  That would be legal, right?  Walking over the groups and doing
in_egroup_p(g) should do that check.  Sure, it's n^2 on the # groups...  So
we could eventually optimize it to exploit the fact that both groupinfos
are sorted and keep last_used_g in both groupinfos...
